Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been writing fanfiction for about four years, reading it for about five. I've been beta reading for over a year now and I'm really enjoying it. When I'm beta reading I will usually put suggestions in red capitals so that they are easy to see then I'll give general feedback at the end of the document. I betaread quite quickly, at the moment I'm managing to get things beta-read and back to the writer in a day or two. I'll look at all aspects of a fanfiction: characters, spelling, plot etc. and will usually read through a chapter/story twice before sending it back to you. If, after you've recieved my suggestions, you would like me to check over any changes you have made then I would be happy to do so.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I think one of my biggest strengths is that I read a lot. I've always got my head in a book, and this has greatly helped my English skills, I have an extensive vocabulary and read a wide range of genres and styles, in both fanfiction and novels. I'm pretty good at finding spelling mistakes and errors in grammar. If I know a fandom, then I know it really well, so I'll be able to help with characters, factual information etc. I can also spot if a character is OOC.
So far I have beta read for The Bill, Oceans 11, Inkheart, Thunderbirds and Starsky and Hutch, so I have experience with beta reading in these fandoms, however I've written for more fandoms than that and feel that I know them all well.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not very good at spotting problems with plot. I'm fine with finding any major plotholes, but not so good at smaller issues. Another problem I have is with writing local dialects, although I should be able to tell you if there's a continuing problem.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll beta most things, I'm pretty open. I would prefer to beta the fandoms that I have selected in my preferences but will try my hand at almost anything, so there's no harm in asking.
I'm also open to slash, and have beta'd slash stories before.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'll betaread most things, if there's something that I'm really not comfortable with I'll let you know when you ask me to beta it.
